Sus.-As a good deal of correspondence on the subject of parents and electors associations has appeared in your columns in the last few weeks 1 thought the following point might be of interest to your readers. At the conference of the Association for Freedom in Education held at Bruges some days ago it was definitely stated and unanimously agreed by representatives of 13 different countries that the right and duly to educated the child rests entirely on the parents. The State has the duty to set the standard of education necessary to the common weal, and to assist the parent in carrying out his duty. This, of course. has been the assertion of C.P.E.A. in this country since the movement began. M. E. Odell, M.A., J.P.,
